Out of curiosity what was the name of the fruit and veg wholesalers?
My ancesters were also in the same trade at the market.

Is the "Wholesale veg market" the same wholesale market in use today, - the one my dad used to refer to as "Parkway market" due to its current location close to Sheffield Parkway?

The old wholesale market was Catle Folds Market.

Its not the more recent one I was thinking of where my dad worked, but I do know of Castle Folds market and am aware of its location.

Thanks for the clarification on that one Gramps.

Haven't been near Parkway Markets since the mid-90s; looking at Google maps it seems to be in the same place, but now called something different according to the Council website.

Not been near it since my dad retired in 1990 so you are more recent than me on this one Gramps.
